The Sixth Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition or BIMPE VI for short, is moving to its new location for the month of October. Dundarave is opening its doors on Wednesday the 6th and is displaying the prize winners, honourable mentions and a portion of the show.
The Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition (BIMPE) presents original prints made by three hundred artists from around the world, and is an opportunity for artists from all over the world to demonstrate the vitality of printmaking. The display of these original prints, created with techniques ranging from etching, woodcut, silk-screen, linocut, to digital, provides Vancouverites the rare opportunity to view a collection so international in scope.
The show moves next to the SNAP Gallery (Society of Northern Alberta Printmakers) in Edmonton for the month of November.
BIMPE is the result of the combined effort of New Leaf Editions, Dundarave Print Workshop and the Society for Contemporary Works on Paper.
